jazz_music saysLiterally Hitler!
Like Mussolini, Trump demands loyalty to his person, rather than to the nation.Like Mussolini, Trump threatens and humiliates anyone who opposes him.Like Mussolini, Trump attempts to discredit and cow the legitimate press.Like Mussolini, Trump becomes enraged when criticized.Like Mussolini, Trump exhibits "thin-skinned ignorance combined with arrogant contempt."Like Mussolini, Trump is a "man of the banner headline" who is quickly bored by details, discussions and strategy.Like Mussolini, Trump takes all the credit when things go right, but none of the blame when things go wrong.Like Mussolini, Trump is what Umberto Eco called "a beehive of contradictions."Like Mussolini, Trump lacks any philosophy: he has only rhetoric.Like Mussolini, Trump gives the impression of talking directly to the people, while presuming to speak for them.Like Mussolini, Trump pretends to be an expert on every subject while in reality being incredibly incompetent and uninformed. Like Mussolini, Trump is closer to a Mafia don or gang lord than a democratic leader.Like Mussolini, Trump has had multiple wives, several mistressses and scores of adulterous affairs. Like Mussolini, Trump is working to strengthen laws against abortions, forcing girls and women to bear children they don't want or can't afford. Here's an eerie coincidence: Mussolini appointed his son-in-law as foreign minister; Trump has appointed his son-in-law as his primary foreign minister in the Middle East, the source of 9-11 and two bloody, trillion-dollar wars.Other ParallelsThey both were "problem children" and bullies who were sent to boarding schools as young men.They both were megalomaniacs, obsessed with themselves.They both had books published.They both denounced military interventions, only to later advocate and order military interventions.They both had children before they were married.They both had affairs while married.They both organized disparate right-wing groups into a cohesive political force.They both blamed their nations' economic problems on other nations that acted unfairly.They both advocated an aggressive foreign policy to arrest a purported national decline.They both painted a picture of a society in crisis that needed a strong leader to save it (i.e., them).They both stoked racial animosities and grievances of the majority against minorities.They both favored the "stick" over the "carrot" in dealing with unwanted "inferior" people.They both favored deportation of "inferior" people.They both saw darker-skinned people as "inferior" to white people.They both enlisted working-class voters against the left.They both mocked people they perceived as weak.They both glorified strength, power and "winning at all costs."They both claimed that only they could restore order and "save" their nations. They both became cults of one.They both denounced legitimate presses while employing propaganda lavishly themselves.They both demanded public displays of loyalty (in Trump's case, everyone saluting the flag during the national anthem).They both called for large sums of money to be spent on public works.They both supported their nation's dominant religion and were supported in return by religious leaders and their flocks.They both used the term "love" while sowing discord, hatred and intolerance. They both were wildly inconsistent; they said whatever suited "the mood of the moment."They both had no time or use for scruples.They both were patently unfit to hold any office, yet held the highest office nonetheless.Trumpism is eerily similar to fascism.
The Democrats won't survive this election. The DNC will cheat Bernie bad, or Bernie will nomination : Either way Trump 2020.Trump changed America Permanently.
This has now officially (more so than the past comments) become a divisive party line "I'm better than you, and you suck" thread.

The best solution to bad ideas is to ignore them. Replying or talking about them gives them free advertising.I'm open to ideas about how to change the site though.
